learn how to take properly exposed pics in bright day light before you learn flash.
also get better lenses. the color fringing is bad.

after this, learn about flash photography.

THEN get some flash gear.

YN560. Which version is up to you, but the mark ii version is best value imo. Next time post this shit in the gear thread.

A 35mm on a Nikon aps-c is ~53mm,so my guess would be Nikkor 35mm 1.8 DX, and the 1.7 is just a rounding error.
